The maker of Fortnite may face a class-action lawsuit in Canada after two parents of teenage sons alleged last week the company purposely designed the multiplayer video game to be as addictive as cocaine, according to reports.
The Montreal-based law firm, Calex Légal, filed a motion in Quebec Superior Court Thursday on behalf of two parents who approached the firm separately about their 10- and 15-year-old sons, who they claim developed a severe dependence on the game,USA Today reported.
Okay this is a tad ridiculous. I'm not surprised that this is going down in Canadian court because any sensible judge would throw this out in United States court. There have been much better video games than Fortnite it just happens to be that more people are playing video games now more than ever. That being said, don't blame Fornite for some kids addiction to a video game. We should be holding to parents accountable for letting their kids play the amount of hours they are logging on their systems.
